This Time Is Yours
Lyrics – This Time Is Yours
This time is yours To sanctify or bleed Do what you will boy You’re living your life doing only what you need This is your sin boy For God or for gold, you pick a fight But what if you’re wrong… that’s right There’ll be hell to pay (they’ll be moaning) Your plan has gone awry Cuz everything you do And everything you say And all your points of view And all the games you play Pass on your moments Pass on your problems Your joy and your tears Your courage and your fears Cuz everything you think Within the here and now Within there is a link To eternity somehow Bridge No, it’s not too late boy No it’s not too late So give yourself a break boy It’s really not too late You know it’s not too late You’re in an awful state But no it’s never too late With eyes staring cold You’re back into the fold When your bones have turned to dust Your story will be told Everything you do And everything you say You will be reimbursed For better or for worse How you choose to live The things you’ve got to give The things you left behind They’re felt through all of time You love or you hate It’s a life that you create Whatever will you do It’s really up to you It’s really up to you Yes it’s really up to you

The present world… this reality we are living in… is, in a very real way, a consequence of an infinite number of things that happened in the past. Kindness or evil… love and compassion or hate and judgement, reverberate through time, affecting the world in a profound way. The words, actions, choices, decisions of people that lived ten thousand years ago are directly responsible, for good or for bad, the state of our present world.
In exactly the same way, our words, actions, choices and decisions have the power to ripple out through eternity, expanding outward with each generation transformed, with an effect impossible to measure. Hate will never conquer hate. Relentless, unconditional, selfless love is the only effective weapon against evil, through its influence on the future. Make love, not war. Make peace, not hate. Be kind, not mean. Be helpful, not indifferent. The future shall be written through our words, actions, choices and decisions, and though your name may be forgotten your legacy never shall.
